That's because Apple trying to prevent Xcode plugin is incompatible with new Xcode, lead to crash on launch. Apple choose a rough and irresponsible way, only plugins match DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUIDs be loaded.

Here's a snippet I used to reactivate my plugins.

find ~/Library/Application\ Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins -name Info.plist -maxdepth 3 | xargs -I{} defaults write {} DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUIDs -array-add `defaults read /Applications/ DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUID`

defaults delete DVTPlugInManagerNonApplePlugIns-Xcode-{your_xcode_version}
